A beloved and popular member of the toy breed, the Maltese hails and wears the crown.
They are one of the brightest and most gentle of the toys and they’re extremely playful and friendly. We have Maltese puppies for sale that are undeniably adorable and affordable. Here’s what you need to know about these little bundles of joy.
We have found that Maltese puppies for sale are extremely gentle and friendly. They are confident and outgoing, but some can be somewhat standoffish displaying a regal air about them. It may have something to do with their distinctive long, white, silky hair and those dark and mysterious eyes!
As you can guess, they don’t require a lot of exercise, but they do enjoy time outside so don’t shy away from taking them along with you. Be careful, however, when encountering much larger dogs, as they may see them as actual toys. They should always be leashed, for their own protection. Because of their small sizes, if they’re outside in fenced areas, double check any loose or open areas so that they don’t slip through!
If you find Maltese puppies for sale and decide to own one, you want to practice early socialization. Introduce them to other dogs and people so that they are skittish, though that’s not a common trait with them. It’s still recommended.
Maltese puppies are rather sensitive and do not respond to forceful training, but they are not difficult to train. They excel in competitive obedience and agility competitions. Unfortunately, they are notoriously difficult to housebreak. You may want to consider an indoor litter box for them or crate training.
